Byte - Definition

A Byte is a unit of data that typically holds a single character, such as a letter, a digit, or a punctuation mark. Making up a byte is a set of bits, with each bit being comprised of an individual character. When there is a long sequence of bits, typically consisting of eight characters, a Byte is established. However, depending on the measurement made, some single characters can take up more than one byte. In summary, for computers, a Byte is a measure of memory or drive space.
